I suggest to disable the Autocorrect option "Capitalize first letter of each sentence" by default (meaning it can be enabled back by the user).
Personally I find this confusing more often than helpful, especially when working with Impress. There you often have bullet point lists that start with lower case letters where you don't want a capitalized letter at the start, and it's very annoying (and non-obvious) to correct that manually.
Hence my suggestion to disable this by default.
While I disagree with the idea to disable capitalization in general I faced the trouble with lists too. So why not have another option "[ ] Capitalize first letter in lists"? Which is off by default, independently from the sentence option.
mwah. what to think of this..
talking about wishes, I would prefer:
- smart popup the first time explaining what happens and allowing to go to settings;
- separate settings for Calc and Writer (and ...)
(thought we already had an issue for that, but it must have been AutoSpell that
I'm confused with..) >> see bug 103882

Sounds good to me. I like this suggestion more than the popup Cor suggested.

+1. edited summary.
It should be possible to disable auto-capitalization of the first letter of text in Calc cells.
Removing needsUX since input has been given. I wonder if such an option is an easy hack.
I like the suggestion, and while you are at it, have the same option for tables.
